Cowboys grind out win in Townsville
The North Queensland Cowboys have defeated the Cronulla Sharks 22-4 in front of 14434 people at 1300smiles Stadium tonight.
After a long stand off, a late try to Kane Linnett would seal the victory with Jonathan Thurston kicking his 500th career goal off the same try.
The Sharks never really looked threating throughout the match with a stale attack that was not executed throughout the majority of the match.
After the break, the Cowboys found points through Gavin Cooper who screamed through a yawning gap to score a try in the 47th minute putting the Cowboys in front.
